Overview: Summer Robinson is your average teenage girl. She's a friend, a girlfriend, and a daughter. Until one day, she becomes something more; a prisoner.
Summer is kidnapped and thrown into a cellar where she will be trapped, given a new identity and left to fear for her life.
Can Summer survive? Or, will the cellar distinguish her light forever?
What I loved: The Cellar is a fast-paced, easy-to-read YA novel. There is plenty of action and substance within Natasha Preston's story.
I really enjoyed this book largely due to it having chapters with different characters' narration and perspective. You get to see the cellar through Summer's eyes, the kidnapper's eyes and even suffer with Summer's boyfriend as he frantically searches for her.
I often couldn't put the book down because I had to know what was going to happen next! The shorter chapters also made it easy to keep reading further and further.
If you're looking for a quick, thrilling read, and enjoy YA, The Cellar is perfect for you.
What I didn't: I felt the ending of the book was slightly anti-climatic and could have been amped up a little more. However, Preston smartly left the door open for the sequel, You'll Always Be Mine. Can't wait to read it!
